** NYSED has suggested the following as potential activities for the K-12 communities to aid with implementation.
· Conduct presentations on the implementation timeline at district administrative meetings and/or regional/local level meetings. Share information with administrators and teachers.
· Utilize electronic communication and social media to inform stakeholders of the timeline for implementation.
· Review the Introduction to the NYS Next Generation Early Learning Standards, the Preface to the ELA and Mathematics Standards, and the Next Generation Learning Standards Introductions for both ELA and Mathematics, identifying potential needs for future professional development in Phase II.
· Review and discuss Dr. Lesaux’s literacy briefs that offer deeper explanation of concepts embedded in the standards. Provide guidance to districts that serve linguistically diverse learning populations. Additional resources: Blueprint for Improved Results for Students with Disabilities and Blueprint for English Language Learner Success
· Review the new Lifelong Practices of Readers and Writers and Standards for Mathematical Practices, identifying potential needs for future professional development in Phase II.
· Conduct an analysis of the crosswalks at the regional/local level that can be utilized to drive future curricular adjustments.
· Identify experts who can communicate an understanding of the changes between the 2011 P-12 Learning Standards and Next Generation Standards.
· Conduct presentations utilizing standards resource documents at the state/regional/local level (including district administrative meetings) which communicate what is reflected in the NYS Next Generation ELA and Mathematics Learning Standards and the impact on curriculum planning
· Develop and deliver PD for school leaders and teachers that builds understanding of the how the Learning Standards affect the needs of all students, with a focus on developmentally appropriate practice (including play) and best practices for diverse learners.
· Build, support, and enhance knowledge of the NYS Next Generation ELA and Mathematics Learning Standards in the public sector (other stakeholders, higher education, parents, and the community) to promote effective implementation.
· Identify district-level policies, initiatives, funding, and schedules that will support implementation.
· Develop professional learning plan to determine the focus of future professional development and major initiatives for effective implementation of the Next Generation Learning Standards
